The Heat: China's two-child policy Pt 1

It has been more than two years since China abandoned its decades old one-child policy. Since 2016, all Chinese couples are allowed to have two children. But, so far the results have been mixed. Last year, China had 17.2 million live births, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. That number represents a small drop from 2016 when the number of children born in China reached 17.9 million. Despite the change in policy, some families still prefer to have just one child. The reasons include issues like the cost of raising children, housing, child care and fewer women of childbearing age. CGTN’s Wei Lynn Tang reports from Beijing.
